Future 50: The search for start-ups continues

Real Business and Red Bull have been spending the Summer encouraging all British firms under four years old to enter our Future 50.

We want to find ambitious and exceptional start-ups for this extended feature, and so far the response has been simply superb. We’ve got entries from fields such as nanotech, motorsport, green energy and the fashion industry. With not much time to go it’s shaping up to be a vintage year.

Naturally we’ve had a few firms and their PR firms begging for more time, so we’ve pushed the deadline back by a week. You now have until the Friday 29 July to enter.

Confirmed judges include Mark Peason of MyVoucherCodes, Madeleine Milne of eMusic and Jos White who sold Message Labs for $695m.

Submitting an entry costs nothing and should take about half an hour, a small investment for the chance of being part of what will be one the most read and talked about pieces of the year.

Red Bull have kindly sweetened the deal. They will host a networking event for all the 50 firms, and there’s a chance to tour their World Championship winning Formula One team factory in Milton Keynes.

Or, if you know of a firm who ought to be considered then please email their name to Charles Orton-Jones at [email protected].

We are in the final fortnight of the entry process, so don’t delay!
